Something other than a “drug rehab”, TLC helps you discover who you are in Jesus Christ. Our program consists of personal study, classroom and small group sessions, one-on-one coaching time, working to give back, and free time.
Orientation & Integration
Learning a new way of living and thinking is not easy, and we want to help you. Your first 30 days will be some of the most crucial, and we want to make sure that you feel welcome and loved. Staff will go over expectations and introduce you to your dorm leader. We are available for direction, encouragement, and friendly conversation.
Growth & Self Discipline
Over time, you will begin to see a change in your perspective. Hope will begin to take root, and you will start to acquire the necessary tools to maintain this journey. You will find yourself changing from an “I have to do this” mentality to an “I get to do this” thinking process.
Learn & Develop
We all have natural talents and God-given gifts, and you will begin to identify the talents and gifts you possess. By having opportunities to practice these talents and gifts, as well as by identifying your passions, you will be able to recognize the calling in your life. No calling is too small, no dream is too big.
Practice & Succeed
There is a difference between trying and training, and TLC offers the opportunity to train. Practice makes perfect. Success is achieved by doing it again and again. When you have put in the effort at TLC, you will receive what is necessary for a fulfilling, abundant life.

The Intergrated Approach
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength. Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these."
Mark 12. 29-31
God created us as whole beings, mind, body, emotions and soul; therefore, TLC offers classes designed to address each aspect of our God-created personhood. Each week, courses include: Spiritual Development, Integrated Studies, Transitions, Practical Ministry and Free Time. Both group class and small group setting are utilized in an effort to transfer principles for successful living, while allowing for discussion of the resident’s thoughts, questions, and feelings that surface.
Spiritual Development, taught by specified pastors and special speakers, includes foundational discipleship classes addressing a variety of life-related and biblical topics. In addition to our Sunday worship service, a Thursday evening campus-wide worship service is led by our Executive Director, thus allowing all residents, staff, family members and the community an opportunity to worship together.
Integrated Studies, taught by our Program Staff, identifies and enables each resident to deal with the emotional, psychological, and relational issues of addiction. In addition, Living in Freedom, which addresses purity issues, is offered as a group class led by a teacher, while the small group component is led by residents approved by the Advisory team.
Transitions, is a four module curriculum taught by our Program Staff that specifically addresses the strongholds of addiction. In Celebrate Recovery, the resident recognizes patterns and behaviors in addiction. Redefining Values allows the resident to replace negative thoughts and values, while Character Progression encourages the resident to remove the stumbling blocks to an abundant life. The fourth component of this step is a weekly small group session which allows the residents to process the principles taught.
Practical Ministry is a campus-wide module offered each Friday and Saturday. Residents serve others through bringing community awareness of addiction, providing practical hands-on ministry to families and churches, and reaching out to churches through music and testimonials.
Free Time is scheduled every Friday and Sunday night in an effort to teach the residents how to properly manage their time by choosing the appropriate activities which will aid in their successful, long-term sobriety.
